I have been taking Tenormin for a very longtime. It works for me in maintaining my BP. But I have developed an annoying cough. I have heard from a few people that Tenormin can cause a cough. Has anyone noticed developing cough for no reason since taking ths med?

Been on this for over 15 years, now take 50mg twice a day. last 6 mo bp not where it should be. Dr added Lisinopril 20 mg once a day. I assumed that things were ok but after reading these reviews I have a LOT of symptoms that I thought were due to getting older so just put up with them. Thinning hair, fatigue, weight gain, no libido, tired all the time, depression and so on. I wish I had chosen to ... Show Full Comment

I have been on 50 mg of this medicine once a day for 20 years and now it is not keeping my pressure down. 180/105. I will now have to add other meds to it. I did turn diabetic also and now I wonder if it is a good one at all with kidneys of diabetics. They say ace inhibitors are what i should take now. But I had a long run and good experience with tenormin. Little side effects.

Took atenolol 50 mg for 1 year. It lowered my blood pressure but caused massive hairloss which was immediately noticed after taking this medication for 3 months. Stopped taking atenolol and it took 1 year for fuzz to start growing back in the bald spots. Was told all beta blockers cause hairloss or thinning of hair. Now taking Diltiazem HCL 120 mg. Working well.

Was on 50mg for many years. B/P good & HB slow 50-60. 3 yrs ago reduced to 25mg. Still about the same. Recently told to cut pill in half & take every 12 hrs. Still about the same. Experience some shortness of breath and fatigue. I can live with that as I am still able to be quite active. Also caused ED. Thank God for viagra. LOL
